    • Beginner - Intermediate Level 
    • Suitable for ages 10+
    • Self-paced learning
    • Lifetime Access
    • Beautifully filmed in HD

    Hi! I’m Nat Martin, a watercolour artist from Victoria, Australia. I’ve been captivated by this medium for as long as I can remember and while teaching is a more recent thing, there’s nothing more rewarding than helping someone explore or reconnect with their creative side.

    This new course, The Magic of Colour Mixing follows on from Welcome to Watercolour and is for budding and established artists alike. In it, we’ll go deep into modern colour theory and together, we’ll build up your skills and confidence so you too can create works bursting with life and begin to develop your own language with colour.

    The course also covers why it’s important to understand colour and how colour affects the mood, temperature and energy of your work. You’ll paint your own colour mixing wheel, learn about colour reference charts, how to create beautiful neutrals and earthy colours, AND, why you keep accidentally making brown (!)

    Colour is such a huge part of my own work, I love using vibrant, high energy watercolour and I’m so looking forward to seeing the magic you create with your finished piece.

    What to expect:


    9 videos shot in High Definition with an overall run time of 120 minutes. The beauty of a self paced online course is that you work through this course to pause and practice before proceeding onto the next stages.

    Outcomes:


    A comprehensive understanding of colour theory

    An understanding of watercolour as a medium and other necessary materials
     

    A final project - a botanical watercolour painting

    Are your courses suitable for kids?

    Yes! My beginners course ‘Welcome to Watercolour’ although not created specifically for kids is young person friendly, I suggest from ages 8 and up. My second course ‘Magic of Colour Mixing’ has a bit more technical content in it, so I would suggest from ages 10 and up. Even better, sit down with your kids and do it together!


    What materials will I need to do the course?

    I put an emphasis on the painting over the materials, expensive art materials tend to be a hindrance to the experience. If you have a set of watercolours already, use those! You don’t need to dash out and buy a whole lot of new supplies to match what you see in the course. You’ll also need a brush or two, some watercolour paper, pencil and eraser, a couple of water jars and some paper towel. I have two kits available in my online store that provide you with all the materials you need, see more here.

    Good lighting helps too, natural light is best if you can manage it, a good workspace as well as a pinch of creative courage! We delve further into materials in the second video of the course covering not only what, but why.
